You’ve Got Skills
Being a volunteer is fun! Did you know that God has uniquely created you and given you gifts, and it’s important to use those gifts to serve others?
We are here to help you experience your Life Purpose and find the place to make that happen! Don’t just sit on the sidelines – everyone gets a chance to play at The Village because our church would not be possible without the help of MANY volunteers.
Each one of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10
What You Can Do
Check out the options below then use the button below to get started or contact the Team Leaders in the specific area you’re interested in! We promise it will be fun!
Do You Have To Serve Every Week?
The short answer is NO. Many of the serving opportunities can be scheduled monthly or whatever works for your schedule. When you join a team you are not locking in to serve every week…unless you want to!
Can you smile and say hi? The welcoming team is the first impression of our church, and you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. Contact Pam Sholz for the Minooka Campus and Sarah O’Sullivan for the Seneca Campus.
Online Chat Room Team
Chat volunteers are a key part to our Online Campus. They connect with online church family, answer questions and guide them through the service. Be on the Facebook, YouTube or live.thevillagechristianchurch.com Chat Teams.
Volunteers check-in 10 minutes before service starts and serve until 10 minutes after service. Contact Patrick Erzinger to find out more!
This team operates our audio/visual system. You can help with video, production slides, lights, or sound at either the Minooka or Seneca Campuses. You’ll need to invest a few hours getting to know the software and then you’ be good to go! Contact Sarah Windham to find out more.
Check out this team if you’re a musician or vocalist at the Minooka or Seneca Campuses. Joining the band requires an audition, which are usually held several times a year. If you’re interested, contact Sarah Windham.
Coffee Center Team
This important ministry creates a friendly atmosphere by providing a fresh cup of hot coffee or sweet lemonade before each service! Contact Joanne Kelly for the Minooka Campus and Sarah O’Sullivan for the Seneca Campus.
Do you like to bake? Share your gift, we serve baked goods the 4th Sunday of each month. Just a plate of cookies or brownies is a great way to serve! Contact Shannon Wujek for the Minooka Campus and Sarah O’Sullivan for the Seneca Campus.
Kid Village Team
Our Kid Village team ensures infants – 3rd grade students are safe while parents are in church. There are different classrooms based on age at both the Minooka and Seneca Campuses. Contact Amy Pehlke for Minooka Campus or Sara Hurt for Seneca Campus.
Pulse Students Teams
Pulse Students is a place where we connect students in a fun community. There’s a group for 4th-5th graders (Pulse 45), a group for 6th – 8th graders (Pulse Jr.) and Pulse Sr. is our high school students. If you’re interested in being a leader or helping with this ministry, contact Nick Sandeno to see if it’s right for you!
Many people find our church because of the community signs. If you’re on the Sign Team, you would put a sign out in your neighborhood on Friday night and pick it up on Sunday afternoon/evening. It’s easy and has a huge impact! Contact Karol Scott if interested.
Social Media / Photography Teams
Like to take pictures? We love to capture moments as they happen and share them to celebrate all that God is doing. Join the Photography Team if you like to have fun while snapping pics. You don’t need a professional camera.
Are you on Facebook or Instagram? We are! We love to share what we’re doing on social media and are looking for volunteers to help! If you’re creative, the social media team is for you!
Contact Karol Scott if you’re interested in any of these teams! You can be at either the Minooka, Seneca, or Online Campuses.
If administration is your thing and you would like to help in the Minooka church office, then contact Shannon Wujek. You may help with mailings and special projects.
Building Maintenance / Landscaping Teams
The Building Maintenance Team helps keep our campuses in tip-top shape. If you’re handy and like fixing things, then this is the team for you! During the winter months we also need help shoveling snow and salting the sidewalks to keep everyone safe. Contact Tim Juskiewicz if you’re interested!
The Minooka Landscape Team keeps our grounds looking great. If you have a green thumb and want to share your gift, contact Susan Juskiewicz.
Be a first responder to assist with medical emergencies and other situations requiring a plan of action. Volunteers need to be trained in First Aid and be CPR certified for the medical team. Contact Heather Houck if you’re at the Minooka Campus and Sarah O’Sullivan if you’re at the Seneca Campus.
Serve In The Community
The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. – Matthew 9:37-38
Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. John 12:26
